After searching all over Samara for "affordable" (read: under $100 for 4 people), we were happy to find Mirador de Samara. I admit to being a bit skeptical by the "no need for a/c, as we get nice winds up high here". However, the truth had been spoken. We had 2 very comfortable nights with no a/c in our VERY spacious one bedroom condo with a SWEET view of all of Samara. Pool was clean, condo was bug free, water was hot, room fit the budget. Happy campers

We had planned on meeting at the house in Samara but had our big reunion on the side of the road in Nicoya. Crazy! We rented a lovely house w/the Riley's overlooking the ocean. Ate our meals at the house under the "rancho" (covered patio) which had an amazing view! However, first ...
... told JP how he wished we could have stayed there for a week. I couldn't understand why but JP's interesting antics and the beer had a lot to do with it.
On our way to La Fortuna we kept seeing signs for a German bakery. Once signs started mentioning the best Bratwurst, Brian was sold. We thus followed the road along the lake until we arrived at the much advertised German bakery. The food was good and the chef and owner was indeed ...
... was around the curve. Could it be? Yep, 2 hours, several miles, 1 broken bike, and a sliced finger later, we were home. I left the bike in the rack, walked up to the hotel front desk with the bloody sarong and hand out stretched. All eyes were on us as we must have looked like zombies from hell. Within minutes we both dropped our shorts and fell into the pool (yes we had suits on). I didn't care that I had blood all over...I just needed instant cooling relief.
... as my dad would say, and my "woohoo" screams turned into little scared yelps. All alone out there, high above the canopy it really was surreal… the views were absolutely incredible, and seeing our shadows way down below, we looked like tiny birds flying.
The two superman lines were definitely the best, and they seemed to go on forever! The 360 degree view from the line was unbelievable! Flying down the last zipline ...
... their own then turned to me and said that I had one more shot to stand up on the regular surf board and if that didn't work out he was going to get the stand up paddle board. The is the equivalent, I suppose, of giving someone who is struggling with swimming giant water wings and a life jacket. So, having been moved to the remedial surfing class, I was left to try to stand on the stand up paddle board - a board, I will point out, is meant to be stood up on!! On a positive ...
